Lice are wingless bugs that are about the size of a sesame seed. They live on the human scalp and travel through head to head contact or contact with lice-carrying objects such as combs, brushes, hats or scarves. They may be frustrating, but they do not carry diseases. Public Health provides head checks on a walk in basis and serves as a resource to the public on the control of lice.
Contact the call nurse at 459-3207 for information or a head check.

Scabies is caused by the human itch mite burrowing into the upper layer of the skin where it lives and lays its eggs. The most common symptoms of scabies are extreme itching and a pimple-like skin rash. The scabies mite usually is spread by direct, extended, skin-to-skin contact with a person who has scabies. Public Health serves as a resource in infection control and education materials. For more information call (920) 459-3207 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
